Growing up we followed the proverbial American Tradition of Turkey and the works.

My daughter recently reminded me that we have developed our own tradition of being "odd" for Thanksgiving.

Here are a few examples of the Thanksgiving meals which we have eaten since our daughter arrived (more than 30 years ago.) ouch!

  • All you can eat buffet
  • Take out Chinese
  • Cruddy truck stop meal
  • Picnic in the back yard (My brother lives in Tucson)
  • Smoked turkey with less than "typical" Thanksgiving fare
  • Upscale restaurant meal in a Casino in Vegas
  • Kabobs on the grill
  • Tamales
  • Prime Rib (took 3 years in a row to get the recipe right)
  • Deep fried turkey

This year our daughter, her hubby and their 2 kiddos will be eating a traditional meal with hubby's family. That may be a shock to her system.

I'll be working.

Hubby will eat chips and dips in front of whichever football game happens to be on the tube after the first, third and fifth game he watches.

The one thing that has never changed for us -- we do indeed offer thanks to the Lord for all we have, for all we have experienced in the past year and for His mercy.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving celebration -- no matter what you eat or where you are!

Our turkey was 19,000 lbs and 32ft long, but it was our first and we loved it even though it was way underpowered. We sold it and now have one that is the greatest. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

How big is your turkey.. about 260 pounds.. Oh, you mean the one I will soon cook so we can eat it. 10.x pounds

How have things changed due to RV experience: Not much. slightly smaller oven means smaler bird is all.
Home is where I park it!

I don't dare ask my wife a question like that. I might get an honest answer.
